  1. hi i can't get anything to play in mplayer because i think i need to install the codecs. It installed with no dependancy errors using yum. I do not have apt so pls dont describe how to get them with that. The mplayer itself works, but it wont play anything lol. mpg, avi, all that it doesnt see.

    sorry nevermind i just finished dinking around a bit and i got it to work. Thanks man, your guidance has paid off. So now i'm wondering how to dl codecs for the mplayer, i suspect that the reason it keeps asking me to choose an application to run mpg files and avi, is cause the mplayer i dled needs the codecs to read those formats. dunno, any help?

    it says dev/sda1 is not a valid block device. I did directly copy and paste your last message too but it had no response so thats why i typed it in seperately lol. i am just too much of a noob i guess, dunno, still want to help me?

    it wont let me mount the device there, it says: [root@CPE000ae61c65b2-CM014060001492 root]# bash: /mnt/thumb: is a directory /mnt/thumb && [1]+ Exit 126 /mnt/thumb > mount /dev/sda1/mnt/thumb bash: /mnt/thumb: is a directory [root@CPE000ae61c65b2-CM014060001492 root]# also can you give me a link to where it describes how to get mplayer codecs, i think thats why it wont work for me.
  5. cool, well i am pretty sure i installed mplayer properly i used yum and got it from an rpm repository and had no dependancy errors or anythng. In my red hat panel it shows mplayer too. The vids i'm trying to watch are in mpeg format, does mplayer support that or not?

  7. yeah i'm really struggling here with this one... what is the .exe equivolent in linux? .rpg? like every time i click on a video to watch it will ask me open with... and then i have no idea how to tell it to open with mplayer because i dont know which one is the application file of it. And another question is, i would prefer to just use windows media player through wine , so is this possible?

    USB driver

    hi i'm a linux super noob but i am dedicated to learning how to use it and i have all sorts of trouble but the one that concerns me most right now is the fact that i can't get red hat to see my usb. I have a flashdrive that i connect and i searched in nautilus (i think thats what its called) anyways i located the directory for my cd rom and my disk drive and so on but no usb drive is available to access. So does anyone know whats going on? I have my motherboard disc with all the drivers and such on it but it was made for windows and i dont know how to install the stuff into linux.
